President Spanky's Dark Ages
March 28, 2018



President Spanky has gone dark on the Stormy Daniels affair. His tweeting bird has lost its chirp.
Spanky's 2006 Forbes magazine will be in the Trump Presidential museum
With the departure of Washington attorney John Dowd from Spanky's Russia no-collusion legal team last week, and a rejection Monday from Dan Webb, a former U.S. attorney in Illinois, the legal team has promoted Jay Sekulow's assistant. Andrew Ekonomou, 69, the promoted assistant, has a doctorate in medieval history. Ekonomou's dark ages book, Byzantine Rome and the Greek Popes (A.D. 590–752), lacks an introduction, has no conclusion, and “never quite articulates a thesis or situates itself in the scholarship,” according to reviewer Thomas Noble of the University of Notre Dame.

The dark ages return like a stutter.

Humor Association: Not too long ago, research scientists decided to switch from conducting research on rats to conducting research on lawyers, giving 3 reasons -
          1. There are more lawyers than rats.
          2. Researchers sometimes became too emotionally attached to rats.
          3. There are just some things a rat wouldn't do.

Cambridge Analytica ran the media and TV campaign for Donald Trump



The Puppeteers
Cambridge Analytica Invented 'Crooked Hillary'
March 20, 2018



Ever wonder how the Russian Troll Farms got the insight into the minds of Wisconsin and Ohio and Pennsylvania?

I did.

Britian's Channel 4 answered that by introducing Cambridge Analytica, the poison pen dipping into the inkwell of Facebook user data. Cambridge Analytica and its former Vice President Steve Bannon took search data and user profiles collected by Facebook and used that data to motivate people to vote, or in the case of Bernie Sanders supporters, not to vote. Cambridge Analytica ran Trump's digital and television campaign.

Channel 4 masqueraded as political candidates from Sri Lanka to secretly interview Cambridge Analytica executives, who boasted they got Trump elected. They invented the Crooked Hillary slogan.

Cambridge Analytica used 'activist' groups to spread their messages

Channel 4's investigation of Cambridge Analytica's proxy war for Trump is on their YouTube channel:

  *  Video 1 - Cambridge Analytica: Whistleblower reveals data grab of 50 million Facebook profilesepic fail

  *  Video 2 - Cambridge Analytica boss under fire from MPs

  *  Video 3 - Cambridge Analytica Uncovered: Secret filming

  *  Video 4 - Cambridge Analytica Undercover Secrets of Trump's Data Firm

  *  Video 5 - Adam Schiff interview on Cambridge Analytica

The psychological data mining and fake news creators at Cambridge Analytica have a spin-off.

Emerdata, a new company in London's Canary Wharf, has been set up with Alexander Nix, the former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, and Robert Mercer's daughters. Nix is listed as a director, as is Julian Wheatland, chairman of Cambridge Analytica parent firm SCL Group (at the same Canary Wharf address). Wheatland set up Emerdata along with Cambridge Analytica's chief data officer, Alexander Tayler. Robert Mercer funded Cambridge Analystica with $15 million and funded the conservative news site Breitbart with $10 million.
